ANIMATION

The Inner Life of the Cell

In 2006, Harvard University teamed up with XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell.

The Inner of the Cell follows a white blood cell’s movement along the endothelium and its response to an external stimulus — a process known as leukocyte extravasation. This widely-acclaimed piece is the first in a series of animations XVIVO has created for Harvard’s BioVisions.

The second installment, titled Powering the Cell: Mitochondria, follows the mechanism of ATP production along the inner mitochondrial membrane.
In 2013, we released Inner of the a Cell: Protein Packing, which illustrates the crowded molecular environment present in cells.

Narrated versions are available on the BioVisions website.
